I honestly hope that you have not been attacked by the
period police. Miri's 2 bits on the period police--
Period police in the right instances can be a good
thing. For example, (and this is ONLY AN EXAMPLE
fiction, not based on anyone or anything) a group is
making a really big deal about having a period Turkish
feast and serve a lot of pork and no lamb at all. It
would be a good thing for the "period police" to go
and inform them, that, NO, this is not correct.
However, if there is single person- you in this case
Chass-- who is prepairing a tavern simply to feed
people who come and pay, with no emplyed "PERIOD FEAST
HERE" message-- well then hopefully no one will be
rude enough to say anything negative!

We all need to remember that the point is to "make an
attempt at pre-17th century" behavior.  Some peoples
attempts are better than others-- some peoples success
are less than what others would call good.

Reality is merely and illusion, albeit a persistent one.
